WEDNESDAY, ALO. 2, 1022.
The Confederate veterans of Oco
neo-- tho Survivors of tho famous
Orr,s Regiment- will be entertained
in Walhalla, in their annual reunion
. MI Aug. I "?th, by tho World War vet-'
( rans of tho Walhalla AMP ??ran I."
y lon. A ruting tribute from youthful
warriors lo aged and worn veterans
who fought in the uar that really
made our great country what it. is
li -day, and without which, many
think, wo would bc many paces lo
ih" hac k wa id of where WO stand to
il ay.
lt is a beautiful thought-this en
tertainment of,the "boys" of the six
ties by the boys of 101-1-1921-reck
oning diem from thc very begin
ning of tho great conflet into which
they entered later, and up to to-day.
The mingling of those youthful ser
vico men with the older men, tho
soldier boys of long years past, will
contribute a beautiful mental picture
for us to store away into our mem
The I U ? 2 reunion of .Orr's Regi
ment will bo unique In this rospsct. I
And how many of tho older soldiers
attending i Iiis reunion will attend1
anolhor? Il is a sad thought-how!
tow ol' those men of tho "days that
tried men's souls" i.iOro are with us;
to-day. and how many less there will j
bo with us by August, 1923. Yet
not all ls sad in hoking at theso
gray and grizzled soldiers of tho
war of half a century ngonc. Not
onojhul has die gratitude of younger
men who luke Ibo time to think--1
and tho World War has put some
pretty deep and wide thoughts into
the hoads of most of those young-1
?'ers who wont "over there" lo do
and to dare -mayhap lo di?' for the \
cause of world liberty and world
freedom. That ls wh> the soldiers
ol to-day are going to feast and en
tertain tho soldiers of yester-year
because they have thought and aro
thinking thoughts that would never I
havo come to thom, maybe, had they
not passed through tho hell of bullet, I
steel and gas. and witnessd some of |
the nauseatingly hideous engines and j
methods of modern warfare.
lt is well that there ls to bo a min?
gling of tho old and young soldiers
of our section In our midst. Wo will
all learn something from this meet
ing if wo will but try.
Lot every citizen Join heartily with
thc youthful veterans in making tho
l?th of August a great and memora
ble day for the veterans of tho six
ties. Wo have still willi us a few of
he old soldiers. Ix>t us not wait till
all are gone-and then regret that
we did not do what we might havo
done to add bright d ivs of pleasure
during Ibo days when their ranks
v/ero thinning so rapidly.
And wo learn that the old soldiers
are to have two days of entertain
ment, for the ladies of Seneca, wo
aro Informed, will Invite tho mem
bers of Orr's Regiment, their com
rades of oilier commands who may
at lend, and ?ill others of tho "boys of
the sixties," to go lo Seneca and
lipend Ibo following day there. So
1922 is to no a year that will stand
our bright and glowing in the minds
and memories of our aged friends.
lt ls well that lt shall bo so!
